Fairydust Martinis


It was in all of the
"Wonder-land" newspapers
how a fairy  commited suicide by
diving into a martini

The drinkee 
being oblivious
to this invisible death
just kept on drinking
not thinking of fairydust,
but only assuming it was 
sparkling from the moon
and, the mouth tingling
 obligatory olive

Some-one in "Wonderland"
 wrote a small obituary
to remember her 
riding to eternity
on a dragonfly's wings

And if the  moral to this story
isn't  obvious, you must,
when drinking martinis under moonlight
watch out
for suicidal fairies
